And yet Betty White DOES have a FB page.
Maybe she changed her mind or just likes to waste time now.

While many of us forum members may be strange, it is always very deliberate, not at all random.

I don't think that you give apps your password. You use your password which enables them to see what you have posted on your facebook page (such as your likes in this case) but that doesn't mean they see your actual password.

Furthermore, you can generate a separate password for each app that is different from your facebook password if you are really concerned about it.

Omg- exactly. I used the app (with the settings defaulted to Only Me) then deleted the app right after I used it. Geez, people. I'm with Calm, even if you can't hula hoop, it is more worrisome to hand over my credit card at a restaurant than for some random app to learn that I like Robert Earl Keen's music.

It reminds me if Despair.com's privacy policy: no we aren't going to sell your name-who'd want a list of unhappy people-Eli Lilly?

People who don't use Facebook are like a particular subset of people who don't watch TV--but they are compelled to tell everyone that they don't. And how dangerous or awful it is to watch TV.

Well, I watch way too MUCH TV and I think it's dangerous and awful! YMMV
